WASHINGTON, D.C. – House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) today issued the following statement after Senate Democrats approved the House-passed bill to extend the Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA) authorization through September 16:

 “I am pleased that the Senate has finally passed the House FAA extension bill which protects tens of thousands of American jobs. House Republicans remain committed to Chairman Mica’s vision to modernize our air traffic control system. We have had enough FAA extensions, 21, over the last 4 ½ years, and it’s time for Senate Democrats to get serious, stop playing Washington insider games and compromise.
